A hacker tried to drastically increase the sodium hydroxide addition to the drinking water supply of Oldsmar, Florida shortly before the Super Bowl game. An employee of the groundwater treatment plant noticed the movement of his mouse pointer and was able to intervene in good time. The sheriff has not yet given any information on the perpetrators or motives.
